SO, where AM I going?

So the end of the second year is upon us, and I think its time that I looked back at a previous question, where do I want to go after my third year here is finished?

Before, I had only touched the tip of the iceberg, but after another year of study and practising my skills I have seen a lot more of what the game industry has to offer, and to be frank it can be a little scary. There are so many different areas of game art it can be hard to choose. But there so one area in particular that I always liked, and that is Environment Design

At first it was hard to choose between whether I to want to specialise in 2D or 3D . Being as I had spent my previous education focusing on 2D design I was initially drawn to that field of work. Always sitting in awe when looking through the environment concept art for games, thinking I would just love to be able to do that one day. Of course this was before I discovered how to actually make these concepts into an actual 3D environment.

When the time came around to work on the group projects, I was starting to get an idea of where it was I wanted to go, and 3D environment art was it. As we progressed more an more through the project, the more my ambitions solidified, 3D environment is where I want to go.
